It’s Official: Dallas City Council Votes to Confirm Nowitzki Way


Being a loyal superstar in sports can come with many accolades and honors during and post career. Such as a jersey retirement, statue, and even have a decal of your silhouette on your former teams court where you consistently drained your signature fadeaway.

For Dirk Nowitzki yesterday, he was honored in a way that even if you don’t step foot inside of the American Airlines Center, you’ll be able to appreciate and witness while in Downtown Dallas.

The Dallas City Council voted on Wednesday in a unanimous 15-0 vote to confirm the name change from Olive Street to none other than Nowitzki Way. Now, it won’t be all of Olive Street that goes through the name change, just the area in front of the American Airlines Center, where Dirk called home for 21 seasons.

Though Dirk wasn’t in attendance, his former right hand man during the 2011 Championship run Jason Terry was there to accept the honor on Nowitzki’s behalf.

“I believe this accomplishment and this achievement is tremendous. A great way to honor a living legend,” Jason Terry, the new Assistant GM of the Texas Legends said on Wednesday.

There currently is not a date set for when Nowitzki Way will be revealed but there will surely be a huge showing to honor The Big German when the street change is to be official.
